Angaben zur Abhaltung 

This course presents the fundamentals of machine learning building on a basic understanding of linear algebra and the axiomatic description of probability theory. Starting with supervised learning basic regression approaches are being discussed, culminating in generalized linear models. Starting with support vector machines various kernel approaches such as Gaussian processes are then covered. We subsequently move on to the general class of neural network methods, their training via backpropagation, bias vs. variance tradeoffs, regularization and modern classes of neural networks. The classes covered in this course are recurrent neural networks, convolutional neural networks, generative adversarial networks, and the more modern transformer networks. The course subsequently culminates in an introduction to variational inference, autoencoders and principal component analysis. The content is subject to change based on progress during the semester. 


 Linear Algebra  Basics of Probability Theory  Foundational Understanding of Programming 


After successfully completing the module, students are able to  understand Kernel Methods.  comprehend the construct of neural networks and training via backpropagation.  understand which neural network class is best suited for a specific application.  develop the ability to construct a machine learning workflow from basic building blocks. 




The module consist of a lecture, during which the class material is communicated by oral presentation with the aid of powerpoint presentations and stateoftheart software tools to develop an understanding of the implementation in practice. Representative problems and code exercises eludicate the essential concepts of machine learning, such as kernel methods, and neural networks. Background reading recommendation are given during class. In addition to the online exercises students can discuss their problems with the teaching personnel in order to deepen the knowledge and explore further applications of the methods. Through instruction and selflearning the students learn the construction behind neural networks, the up and downsides of training via backpropagation and a problemspecific grasp for the suitability of neural network classes. Thus, their foundational knowledge is gained to subsequently construct a machine learning workflow from basic building blocks. Powerpoint slides, online exercises, and source code.
